Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

Supernatural has its own thread but I'm likely the only one to have posted in it for the last few years.

The seasons are all over the place qualitywise and the show has changed what it is over the years. It's self-aware and not afraid to make fun of itself, which is both good and bad. Production quality has gone way up in the last couple of seasons but the storylines have been uneven at best.

The Widow on Amazon is terrible and Kate Beckinsale has too much Botox to attempt to show any emotion, but I can’t stop watching it.

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

Need a little help here. I'll be traveling to Spain in a couple weeks which means I have an incredibly long, and boring, plane ride over and back. What shows can I download and binge on the flight? I think it has to be something on either Amazon or Netflix so I can download to my ipad.

I don't think the show is terrible, standard TV mystery stuff, it's just that her character isn't believable.

Probably not a spoiler, but in tags anyway.

I've started watching Schitts Creek and it is solid and fairly funny.

cant wait for season 2 to hit Netflix, that gal cracks me up

I stumbled across a show called Crashing she's in that was good for a quick bing; it was cancelled after 6 episodes, she really carries it imo. Maybe this is what lead to Fleabag for her

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

I highly recommend Blue Planet II if you haven't seen it, it's a 6-part documentary series about life in the oceans. Incredible production values and some really surprising and fascinating stuff in there, including incredible examples of intelligent behaviours. If you liked Planet Earth II definitely don't miss this one, it's perhaps less spectacular overall but makes up for it in creepiness/weirdness and learning new and interesting things.

Also I usually skip the production diaries but don't miss the one at the end of ep 1, it's about the process for filming dolphins in surf. This camera guy went out on a jetski into this giant swell, it's hair raising and definitely worth the watch.

I'm surprised you miss the production diaries for Attenborough stuff. I'd happily watch a whole film for each episode.

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

I know it has its own thread, but it isnt bumped very often.

The episode of Youre the Worst that aired last night might be my single favorite episode of Television ever.

The show concludes next week. If you havent watched it, the whole thing is on Hulu. Its worth the time.

Million Dollar Mile is a better show than The Titan Games. Enjoyed the first ep. (FF'ing through the fluff, and just watching the obstacles/races, it goes by pretty quickly.)

Anyone with on demand should have access to all of season 5. And thats it. Im sad its ending but it is the perfect length for the story told.

I thought MDM was awful and not interesting at all. The contestants have no chance of winning more than $25k and there’s no real drama if they only do 1-2 obstacles before trying to leave the game.

Tim Tebow as a host does not help as he has zero personality and a poor “hosting voice” if that makes sense.

Fair enough. I think it's extremely unlikely that nobody gets $50k or more though, and a pretty good chance that somebody gets $100k or possibly $250k. They're not gonna show you the very best competitors in the first ep, and somebody already won $25k in the premiere. I guess that's enough drama for me for a show like this.

I agree with you about Tebow, but I barely hear him, as I only watch the obstacles/races, and I like Maria & Matt better than Akbar & Matt on ANW or the commentators on The Titan Games. Not saying it's spectacular TV, but that it's interesting enough to me for a show of this type, and I think the format is actually more dramatic than ANW or TTG or most shows like this.

I know it’s a nit-pick, but if the way the contestant lost was about being tagged, that would be more dramatic in my opinion. Since they have to use wires for a lot of the obstacles, I can see why they don’t do that though.
